  Summary  

Eurosport is a pan-European television sport network operated by French broadcaster TF1 Group. The network of channels are available in 59 countries, in 20 different languages providing viewers with European and international sporting events. Eurosport first launched on European satellites on 5 February 1989.

  Biography  

Eurosport was launched in 1989 as a joint venture between the European Broadcasting Union and Sky Television plc. When Sky merged with BSB they decided to focus on the sports programming on Sky One, and also The Sports Channel, launched by BSB, which was renamed Sky Sports.

Eurosport was closed down in May 1991 after the competing Screensport channel had filed a complaint to the European Commission over the corporate structure. The channel was however saved when the TF1 Group stepped in to replace BSkyB as joint-owners. A new Eurosport channel was able to start its broadcasts the same month. On March 1, 1993, the cable and satellite channel Screensport merged with Eurosport. Eurosport eventually came under a French ownership consortium, comprising the TF1 Group, Canal+ Group and Havas Images. Since January 2001, the network has been owned entirely by TF1.

Eurosport is currently broadcast in twenty languages; English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Russian, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Serbian, Greek, Turkish, Cantonese.

In May 2007, Yahoo! Europe and Eurosport formed a co-branded website which Eurosport uses as its web portal, including an online TV guide, in the UK, Ireland, Spain, Italy and Germany.

In 2008, Eurosport launched an online subscription service that allows Internet users to watch both Eurosport and Eurosport 2 live, plus additional coverage not available via broadcast. During the 2009 Australian Open, the Internet player offered coverage from five courts.

 2011 rebrand
On 5 April 2011 Eurosport rebranded its channel. The rebrand incorporated six new on-air idents along with a new logo and presentation style both on-air and off-air. The new on-air identity has been designed by Paris based design company Les Telecreateurs. All localized Eurosport channels embrace the new identity. The Eurosport website also embraces the new identity.
